Overview of the Course

This course offers training in professional waxing and other depliation skills, leading to an industry recognised qualification. Initially, students practice on each other in the classroom before progressing to the student salon where you will perform proper treatments for our clients. In this way, you will build your confidence and skills gradually, and gain extremely valuable ‘real life experience’ on real clients before you even leave school. Once you enter the industry, you’ll be all set to go.

As an added bonus, we will also teach you how to apply cosmetic tan to a professional standard. This will include exfoliation using a body scrub and the application of various types of cosmetic tanning products. The tanning part of this course is very useful to compliment the waxing days (and to give those hairs a chance to grow back!) and will give you another valuable skill for your beauty career.


Hair removal is a very profitable service to offer your clients, so this course is a must for those who want to learn practical and commercial skills for a business environment or a busy home salon. Personal grooming is still a massive growth industry, especially in the men’s sector, and the demand for hair removal is huge. Another aspect of this area is hair lightening whereby the hairs are ‘bleached’ to make them less noticeable – a good option for those who can’t bear the discomfort of waxing.
